Real Steel Clip Looks…Crap!

WTF is this? Hugh Jackman with a wi-fi headset on shouting a random collection of heavy metal band names like: “Shogun trinity!“, “Gravity slam uptown!“, “Pain revulsion!“, “Hitler’s lacey nightie!“, in what looks like a warehouse/boxing arena where two giant robots are beating the axle grease out of each other, at a point in the future where everyone’s still listening to hip-hop from the 80s.

Excellent movie website Hey U Guys posted up this official clip from the movie Real Steel, which is due for general release on October 6th and will become just another film, in a long line of movies released this summer/year, which we won’t be going to see. The film’s official synopsis reads:

Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo​​ ​ ) to build and train a championship contender. 

Yes we know we posted a while back that this film looked rather good from the trailer but we’ve had second thoughts. Come on, it’s just a big budget version of Robot Wars with a buffer version of Craig Charles. Bring on Sgt Bash!
